Eleventh Hour Rescue
Eleventh Hour Rescue is a volunteer based, non profit organization that literally saves dogs from death row. We rely on the generosity of our volunteers to provide loving foster homes for dogs pulled from death row in high-kill shelters. We invite you to explore our website and humbly offer you the chance to let one of our exceptional dogs touch your heart the same way they each touch ours. Without you, we couldn't do what we do for the dogs, and that is to simply give them a chance. Without you, our dogs don't stand a chance.
The Dylan Flinchum "Rock On!" Foundation
The Dylan Flinchum "Rock On!" Foundation was established to help provide love and support to Mike and Melissa (Larsen) Flinchum and their beautiful three year old son, Dylan.
Shortly after Dylan’s second birthday in January of last year, he began to experience difficulty walking. After being referred to several medical specialists (including some of the top neurosurgeons in the country at Cornell Medical Center in NYC) it was determined that Dylan had a condition known as Chiari malformation. Dylan underwent surgery in the spring and was expected to make a full recovery.
After several weeks of physical therapy, Dylan was not progressing as expected and began to show symptoms that were unrelated to the malformation. A follow up MRI was completed and doctors were shocked to significant change in Dylan's white brain matter. After getting the initial diagnosis from Cornell, Mike and Melissa traveled to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) where it was confirmed that Dylan is suffering from a degenerative disease known as metachromatic leukodystrophy, often referred to as MLD.
